Class ^tstorp of 1915 



It was with great awe that we took our places in Abbot Hall to hold our first class meeting 
to elect officers for our Senior-Middle year. It was hard to realize that we were at last a 
real class and having the privilege of voting, but when the meeting was adjourned we felt 
capable of conquering worlds. The most important events of the year were the play, which 
from our point of view was a success, and the class banquet, which was really the first time 
we were all together as a class. It gave us a feeling of union and made us realize just what 
it meant to be loyal members of the class of nineteen fifteen. 

The year was brought to a close by the gift of the Senior Parlor, on which occasion we 
for the first time received a sense of the significance and the deep solemnity of the Senior year. 

At the beginning of the year we immediately began to make use of the luxury of the 
newly-decorated Senior Parlor, in which our class meeting for election of officers was held. 

The next landmark of this memorable year was the never-to-be-forgotten Senior Picnic. 
After a wonderful spread a very select entertainment was furnished by members of the class, 
and a fitting close to a glorious lark was the moonlight and tuneful ride back to school. 

The time between this and mid-years was filled with good, hard work, but we received 
our adequate reward in the four days' outing at Intervale in the White Mountains, which we 
have since relived many times and the memory of which will never cease to be an inexhaustible 
source of enjoyment. 

15 



Our Senior year has not been all smooth sailing. Our trials and tribulations came in 
ample quantity while rehearsing for the Senior play; however, the memory of the unpleasant 
past has been banished by the memory of the unexpected and overwhelming success which 
attended the final production. 

As the year approaches its close we stand for a moment and contemplate with grateful 
hearts all that we have gained and achieved in the time that we have spent at Abbot. 

There are a few more events before our year is concluded and then we go out in the " wide, 
wide world"', where we hope to make use of all that we have gained, and abide by the standards 
of our Alma Mater. 

May we all live up to our motto : " Be your best that you may give your best to a world 
that needs you."

If we have chosen to root you 
Up from the forest's heart, 

If Ave have elected to set you 
Here in a place apart. 

Think not, little tree, we lacked purpose- 
One we have had from the start. 



We wanted to make you the guardian 
Of all we have learned to hold dear; 

For to-day we must fare forth from Abbot, 
The school we have loved through the year, 

Loved with a love growing stronger 
As we felt separation was near. 



As dryads of old were embodied 

In trees, and sweet spirits in streams, 
The spirit of '15 we leave you, 

Little Spruce, when the moon's misty beams 
Or the sun's shimmering rays rest upon you, 

May we trust you to cherish our dreams!-'

Abbot Academy 

Andover. Massachusetts 

June, 19*5 
Dearest Mattie: 

Such an inspiring time of year to be in Switzerland! You must be enjoying the gorgeous 
scenery immensely — and getting many sketches for the picture which you have long prom- 
ised us. We surely are proud of our famous lady — you do 1915 great honor — yes. you do; 
I can almost see that modest, self-deprecatory nod — but you know it's true. 

But now to tell you of the reunion — commencement, and how we missed you. Shall I tell 
you what everyone's doing first? Yes. you say? Very well. I suppose it would be a wise 
plan to begin with "String" — our lady president. My dear! You'd never know her. She's 
grown very large and imposing-looking — a little awe-inspiring as of old. You know she's 
quite a society queen now — dances for all the smart charity affairs, and is a noted horse- 
woman, and they say she is going to marry a titled foreigner, but that of course is only hearsay. 

Such a startling entrance was made by "Mikey" Hamblet! We were sauntering slowly 
round the circle, when we heard a tremendous buzzing, and "Mikey" alighted from the 
sportiest monoplane that's been seen around here for a good while — quite characteristic 
of her? 

In the midst of all the excitement, a tall lady swathed in multitudinous veils entered. 
On her ankles and arms were jingling bangles, and a heavy, mysterious odor emanated from 
her garments. We didn't know whether we were being honored by the presence of a Hindu 
princess or whether it was merely a gypsy fortune-teller. While we were gazing m wonder, 
the vision let fall her mantle, and a willowy form emerged which we all immediately pounced 
upon — for it was none other than our dear old Patty Williams. But she is Patty no longer. 

18 



You have heard of Mme. Zula Vachesky? Well, it's our Patty — a world-famed 
clairvoyant. 

Not the least among the celebrities present were the two authoresses — the Leach twins. 
They have just published a book on "Correct Dancing", and it has been very highly com- 
mended by the Outlook. 

You have heard of Madame Sontemorri, the eminent authority on Child Education. 
Dear Marion Barnard is in her element with all the children to experiment on she could 
wish for, since schools founded on her method are established in every part of the world. 

Our dear little Sarah is now appearing as Cassandra. The success with which the pres- 
entation of this role was greeted has rendered it impossible for her to be with us. Rumor 
hath it that the coronets of Dukes and Earls are lying at her dainty little feet. 

Have you heard of the exalted occupation of Gertrude Shackleton? She is running a 
jitney line de luxe, between Abbot and old P. A. Needless to say she has an overwhelming 
patronage and we understand that she is worth a small mint. 

Muriel, otherwise known as Mme. Yaleska, gave us a free demonstration of her special 
dance, which has made her queen of the cabaret dances. 

And dear old Aurelia has been an efficient member of the staff of St. Bartholomew's 
Hospital, New York, for over three years. From all accounts she is the most popular and 
best-beloved woman in her profession. Her unselfish devotion to her patients has won her 
the esteem and regard of a great many people. She has been called a second Florence Nightin- 
gale. 

Our bouncing Shelly is now bouncing around in China. She is teaching calisthenics 
to Chinese ladies, and her success is amply demonstrated by the sudden elongation of Chinese 
feet. 

Well, my dear, you can guess how excited we were when the "First Lady in the Land" 
joined our circle. Imagine it! Dear old Norm, the wife of the President of the United States! 
However, her exalted position apparently made no difference — she was the same old Norm 

19 



we felt we couldn't do without at Abbot and her dimples were deeper than ever. What do 
you think she brought!-' An invitation from the President for the whole class to come down 
to the White House and meet all the celebrities. You will simply have to get back for this! 

Jessie, our class bride, is as coy as ever. However, she is not so secretive as of yore, 
about the immortal "Fritz" — in fact, it is rather hard work to get her to talk on any other 
topic. She is a truly inspiring example of blissful domesticity. 

We were all delighted when Betty Gleason was able to obtain a leave of absence from 
the school where she is teaching in Bingville. Texas. She had many amusing stories to tell 
us of the children's devotion to her. However, we were glad to find that the ardors of 
teaching had not deprived her of her girlish giggle. 

While we were still greeting Betty, we heard the clatter of hoofs on the newly -concreted 
circle and on rushing forth we perceived a vision in gauze and spangles poised lightly upon a 
horse's back. When the "vision" had approached nearer we discovered it to be none other 
than Helen Bruce, whom you remember to have been so demure. 

You remember little Bun Allen? Well, she has married the famous modern exponent 
of the Pre-Raphaelite school and she now poses as a model for innumerable madonnas and 
saints. 

Not the least among our celebrities is one who has explored realms far beyond our ken 
at Abbot. Professor Winklebleck. You would never recognize our one-time "Winkie" in 
the grave and distinguished scientist, who has achieved undying fame by discovering the 
ultimate atom. 

You remember our "good kid"? Well, my dear. Eleanor is now a scientific farmer, 
^es! After taking a course in Cornell, she bought a farm in New Hampshire and is making 
a go of it. She now talks nothing but rotation of crops, milk and cream separators, to say 
nothing of roosters and "hawgs". 

"Phillis" Brooks, my dear, is the Republican candidate for the governorship x>f Massa- 
chusetts. The evidences are all in favor of her having an easy victory over her opponents. 
We girls heard one of her platform speeches — and she actually moved us all to tears. 

20 



Wasn't it the most fortunate thing you ever heard of, about "Lam"? Imagine it! This 
was the only time she would have been able to be with us for ten years more anyway. She 
and her husband, Dr. Thomas Jackson, have returned for six months in order to get more 
supplies and money, so that they may extend their wonderful work. They have gone farther 
north than any of their predecessors, and they now number eight thousand Eskimos, whom 
they have converted. 

Our college beauty, Arline, is now travelling through the West as an advance agent for 
Billy Sunday. Her methods of arousing enthusiasm are so successful that at times she is 
in danger of being mobbed by over-enthusiastic members of her audiences. 

Rena and "Migie", as you perhaps know, are starring in the "Follies of 1925". All 
New York is wild about them. "Migie" was wearing a bunch of fifty orchids and Rena was 
radiant in an ermine coat. 

Ada looks charming and more fascinating than ever in her widow's weeds. She is ex- 
tremely popular in Pittsburg, and between you and me and the gatepost, there are at least 
two distinguished personages who would give much for the privilege of wiping the tears from 
her blue eyes. I almost forgot to say that her mouth still crinkles at the corners when she 
smiles. 

And our dear old light-headed Si! Impulsive and versatile as ever! A book of charming 
love songs was immediately followed by an amazing record; yes, she came in first in the big 
International Auto Race — to our delight and to the horror of all those good, romantic old 
souls whom she pleases with her poetry. She looked simply stunning, with those golden locks 
in a perfectly fiendish twist — quite new, but, oh my! 

And now I believe this completes the list. Don't you think you owe it to us to write 
the latest and fullest particulars concerning your own dear self? How is the young German 
officer who stayed at your hotel, and which is to come off first, the exhibition of your master- 
piece in the Royal Academy, or ! 

With oceans of love and a kiss on every wave from all of us, 

Your devoted 

"Chum"

FROM THE 

VIEW PUNT 

/-\kWI \^ full He 

I B 



Rebekah of Sunnychick Farm 

In plot and characterization it is unique, a law unto itself. It is not the sort of production 
that holds you spellbound, but nevertheless it has a charm all its own. The play is one which 
no one can afford to miss because of the inspiration it affords. 

Peg 0' My Heart 

The heroine is a winsome and charming lass from Buffalo, who immediately captivates 
all hearts. The play does not contain a great number of clever lines, neither is it intensely 
dramatic, but no one who sees and hears it will regret that delightful experience. 

Patty Long-Legs 

This is a play which has not as yet received its just dues. It has many merits which have 
evidently been overlooked. It is a play which is perhaps better appreciated the second or 
third time which one sees it than on the first occasion. It is to be highly commended for its 
unexpected flashes of wit and the na'ive originality evinced in both plot and construction. 

Without the Law 

The cast of this production is composed of quite a number of distinguished celebrities; 
not the least among these are Julie Sherman, Betty Bissell, Ruth Moore, Marie Gardner, 
and a number of others equally famous. This play is rich in both excitement and amuse- 
ment, but after one has witnessed the performance, one can't help regretting that the un- 
deniable ability of the cast should be wasted on a mediocre piece. 

25 



Under Cover 

The direct opposite of the play just criticized. At first, it has a very strong appeal — 
hut one soon finds oneself comparing it to II iihout the Law, and the comparison is immensely 
detrimental to Under Cover. The amusement and excitement afforded by the daring plots 
are greatly impaired in the latter play by the lack of frankness, openness, and spontaneity 
which constitute the chief merit of the rival production. It is a play which we should hesitate 
to pronounce worth while. 

The Beauty Shop 

Some extremely popular actresses appear in this comedy. The leading lady is Miss 
Esther Davis. A peculiar thing about this actress is that she always reserves her really best 
work for "'Christmas time". The part requires quite an extensive make-up, and she has been 
known to take over two hours in preparation for one of her appearances during one of the 
"Christmas" holidays. 

The Shadow 

Miss Brooks, an actress of unusual charm and quiet dignity, who appeals alike to all 
classes, is practically the whole show. The exquisite finish and technique which are associated 
with her presentations, should place her on a level with Sarah Bernhardt or Mrs. Fiske, were 
it not that she never quite forgets or loses herself in her part. But while this actress has not 
great genius, she most certainly has great talent, and a most successful future may be safely 
predicted for her. 

Grumpy 

Another misleading title — nothing could be further removed from a gloomy effect than 
the whole atmosphere of this play. From beginning to end it is one long laugh, although 
here and there a serious note creeps in, which, however, does not at all mar the artistic worth 
of the play. We extend our heartiest congratulations to Miss Sheldon for an excellent bit 
of work. 

26 



The Smart Set 

This is an amusing little farce which, while it never touches bottom, nevertheless pro- 
vides a certain amount of entertainment. The costumes and staging are particularly note- 
worthy. They are in some instances most elaborate. The most popular members of the 
cast are Miss Butler, Miss Weber, Miss Ferguson, Miss Erickson, Miss Balfe, and last but 
not least, Miss Warfield. 

Banty Pulls the Strings 

It appears that this play was produced a couple of years ago in Davis Hall, and, on account 
of the success with which it was attended it has been decided to revive it, although under 
entirely new management. If you have not already made its acquaintance, you undoubtedly 
will soon do so, as it was and still is immensely popular. A great treat is in store for those 
who have not yet made its acquaintance, while those who already know it will count all praise 
too weak. 

The Quaker Girl 

If one wishes to be genuinely amused and at the same time have all of one's senses cap- 
tivated by delight, do not fail to see this deliciously original show. The name is misleading — 
though Miss Wilkey looks the part to perfection. As the play advances we find that the seem- 
ingly demure and modest little heroine is in reality far from quakerish. There is quite enough 
spice in this piece to satisfy even the most blase habituees, and yet it is of a quality so re- 
fined that it should not offend, even the ultra fastidious.

Oh young, fair youth upon our green, 

Whence came ye here? 
Whence came ye forth with joyous mien 

To gaze upon our scene? 
Alas! we hear a woeful sound, 
He's opened wide his mouth. 
And forth came "One, two, three," in tones 
That waken all the house. 



And soon our friend spies on the street 

A mooly cow! 
He leads her by one dainty horn. 

And round the path they speed. 
The Abbot girls from windows lean. 
The sight's too good to miss, — 
To see a P. A. boy and cow, 
What better could one wish?

Once upon a midnight dreary, everything was dark and feary. 
Gathered stealthily in a secret chamber, supped midnight feasters four. 
While they revelled without clapping, suddenly there came a tapping 
As of some one gently rapping, rapping at the chamber door. 
Quoth a stern voice, "I am surprised!" and grimly shut the door. 
Quote the culprits. "Nevermore!"

Hey diddle diddle, 

Liz and the fiddle, 

Miss Chickering thought 'twas a comb; 

Her great aspirations 

Were dashed to the nations. 

So she and her fiddle went home. 

Ride a cock-horse with good Mr. Cross, 
And see a young lady upon a black horse. 
While she is riding she's gay as an elf, 
But when she comes back she must eat off the

Mildred did need no fat, 
Pauline did need no lean. 
And between the two, vou see 
Things very well have been.

Each tried a bit

They knew they hadn't oughter.

Rapped at the door 

To see if her friend was at home. 

She opened it wide 

And thereupon spied

Always make Her bed. 
Flowers are always appreciated. 
Stick around — and don't let Her forget you. 
Never leave Her alone. 

Never waste time studying when you can talk to Her. 
When in company, look at Her meltingly. 
It's good form to do Her mending. 

See that She never talks to anyone when you're not there to chaperon. 
Inspect Her mail. 

Embrace Her publicly. She will understand. 
Always cultivate Her point of view. 

These suggestions may prove helpful, but if further information is desired, send stamped 
envelope.

{Apologies to the Ladies Home Journal) 

When she exclaims mid peals of glee at the becoming new gown I wear, when everyone 
knows it dates back to the Civil War period — Oh! How I love her! 

When she walks over my "Busy" sign and wants to rub my head when I had just dozed off 
to sleep — Mercy ! How I love her ! 

Yes, when she borrows all my postage stamps and forgets to return them. Then it is I love her. 

When she carols gaily into my room at 6 a.m., slams down my window and then proceeds to 
gently administer cold water — Then how I love her ! 

When I have a brilliant idea and am just about to give it utterance, then she beats me to it — 
ye gods! how I love her!

We, the Senior Class of 1915 of Abbot Academy, do give and bequeath the following privileges 
to the loyal underclassmen, to have and to hold as long as they remain members of this 
institution: — 
To the Preps — 

Awe of upper classmen. 
Privilege of retiring at 9.15. 
Going to sleep at lectures. 
To the Juniors — 

A morsel of dignity. 
Keeping silent in chapel. 

The joy of being an old girl and lending a hand to the homesick preps. 
To the Juxior-Mids — 

Great expectations of the "Prom". 
Joy of giving the news. 
Exerting personality and influence. 
To the Sexior-Mids — 

The privilege of carving an obstreperous fowl now and then on Sundays. 

The privilege of walking out of the dining-room with one arm embracing the dainty 

waist of a member of the faculty. 
The pleasure of losing yourself in the depths of philosophy. 
The joy and inspiration of being a Senior. 
And in the hands of all place the honor of preserving the traditions and advancing the 
standard of our dear Alma Mater. 

Signed 

The Class of 1915
